Confident Investor comments: At this price and at this time, I do not think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V.. It is not possible to confidently invest in a company that is not currently profitable. I am removing Chicago Bridge & Iron from my Watch List.
